UHPD investigating two robberies
UHPD is currently investigating two robberies that occurred on-campus Monday morning.
The first robbery occurred at approximately 12:24 a.m. when a visitor working at the Wortham Theater reported his cell phone had been stolen as he was walking back to his car, according to a security alert released by the University. The suspect, a black male who was allegedly driving a silver Toyota Camry drove up to the victim and asked to use his cell phone. The suspect then allegedly drove off with the cell phone after the victim handed it over. The victim reported that he injured his back after falling down during the incident.
The second incident happened around 9:23 a.m. near the first floor of the Cullen Oaks Apartments parking garage. The suspects, two black men between the ages of 19 and 25, allegedly approached the student and demanded his property, which included his laptop, backpack and phone. One suspect allegedly pulled out a dark semi-automatic handgun and, after acquiring the property, fled in a 2013 white Nissan Altima.
